My mother has a vergissmeinnicht booklet. It is very
much a German tradition. When she vacationed in
Germany a number of years back she came back with a
booklet labelled: "Vergissmeinnicht." They still
print these booklets! She explained what it was and
gave it to me to carry on the tradition! When I
decided to start a family tree, both my booklet and
hers came in quite handy. (My mother entered more
names from her generation including her second cousins
and I entered my first, second and third cousins).
Both of us will be adding the ancestors that I am
researching as names become available.
